Brian May admits ‘greatest regret’ on ‘beautiful extraordinary’ Queen + Adam Lambert tour
Brian said:

“It’s been my regret on this tour already that I can’t do what I usually do, which is meet people, do meet and greets, meet people at the stage door, do autographs, do pictures, huddle up and stuff.

“Can’t do any of that on this tour, sadly, because we are taking it so seriously the fact that we could lose shows and so many people would be disappointed. So we are on fierce anti-coved protocols and I’m afraid I can’t meet you this time around.”  SEE MORE OF BRIAN’S COMMENTS/VIDEO MESSAGES ON SOAPBOX
